The Voyage - (Mojo Bones/Toy Studio)

Hi guys,

We've been locked away, brewing up new games for what feels like forever now, but it's finally time to announce The Voyage: our spiritual successor to The Curse.


Youtube link | Pop Up


There have been many improvements, in lots of different areas, taken primarily from player's feedback (yes... those blasted timed puzzles have been cut and we now have iCloud support)

We'd love to get some of you Touch Arcade folk involved in an early access of the game - so PM us if you're interested. Numbers will be limited though.

Give us your thoughts, and help spread the word.

Thanks,
The Mojo Bones team

Hi guys, quick follow-up.

We've posted the soundtrack to The Voyage on our Bandcamp page and we're allowing free downloads in the run-up to the game's release (you can also download The Curse soundtrack too)...

We'll have some release date news for you real soon

Thanks,

Huge Fan of The Curse & Tongue Tied! here. Looking forward for The Voyage since some of the Mini Games already look awesome.

Thanks Sanuku, appreciate the support.

We're also planning some fun interactions with our main character - Captain Bucklebeard - outside of the game itself, using video responses. We had some fun with the Mannequin on these forums after The Curse was released and we're looking to go one step further this time.

Any ideas of what you'd like to see re: these... send them over.

Not long to go now.

Any chance you could tell us more about the hole Gameplay? I`m currently unsure if it is a Mix of different Mini Games or something like the Professor Layton Games.

Sure Sanuku,

The Voyage is a spiritual successor to The Curse in that you're presented with a puzzle book consisting of 100 pages. Each page represents a puzzle to solve, with the difficulty increasing as the book progresses. However, just like The Curse, you're free to tackle the puzzles/pages in any order you like. Maybe you have a particular favorite, of perhaps you want to clear the hardest ones first. The choice is yours.

We have 29 unique puzzle mechanics in the game (all new, and more than we had in The Curse) and a new adversary that you'll be battling against.

In terms of your objective, you and Captain Bucklebeard will both be searching for a long lost treasure, and it's only by completing the book, solving the puzzles and deciphering the clues that you'll eventually be able to locate Velvet Marley's hidden riches. Bucklebeard will also be hunting for the booty too, so who knows if you'll reach it in time. Cutscenes are fully-voiced and provide a story element to the game if you care for it. We also have numerous cutscene events to participate in.

We've got some great free updates planned which will expand the Voyage universe and these will consist of new puzzles, modes and challenges. We want The Voyage to grow over time.

As we mentioned in the original post, we've taken feedback from the original game and incorporated it into The Voyage. The difficulty curve has been greatly improved and we've also tried to feature puzzle types that we're popular in the original.

Hope that helps.
